"David Rowe stands out from the average free and open source software person in at least two respects: he has done remarkable things with both software and hardware and despite this he is a very modest, low-key person.

"It is fair to describe him as one of many unheralded Australians who does sterling work but is overshadowed by the many empty vessels who make a huge sound.

"Rowe is involved in several projects, one of them being an outfit called The Village Telco, which is trying to provide communications to the African continent using open source telephony software and hardware. The project is sponsored by The Shuttleworth Foundation.

"He is also involved in a free telephony project using similar components, building a network in East Timor, and developing an open source low bitrate speech codec."
